Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley told Steelers.com that they expect to get to the Super Bowl this coming season. “As a team,” said Haley, “our expectation is to get to that confetti game, as Coach Tomlin likes to call it.” Haley knows the areas they need to improve in going forward. “As the offensive coordinator, after the season is over we can’t look back on it and say, ‘Halfway through the year we had the second-fewest turnovers in the league and by the end of the year we were toward the back of the pack,’” said Haley. “That can’t happen. That plus-minus has to be up in the plus-range. That’s proven.” Haley says they have the improve their production on the ground. “Also,” continued Haley, “we have to be able to run the ball much more efficiently. We can’t be banging our heads against the wall for 2 yards, because I really do believe that you throw the ball to score points and you run the ball to win. You need both in different situations. Ultimately so many of these games at the NFL level are decided by seven points or less, and so those little things are going to be what win and lose for you.” Haley is excited about this coming season. “I’m excited. I think everybody is excited,” said Haley. “We’re going to have some young guys who will have to come in and perform, but the thing that came out of last year was we got a lot of young people some playing time, specifically on the offensive line, which is invaluable. The Kelvin Beachums and the Mike Adamses, and even David DeCastro, who wasn’t 100 percent but still got some real-time snaps – that should help them a bunch. I would expect great development up front, and I think our quarterback is as good as anybody’s. We just need to do a better job of protecting him and him of protecting himself. And we need to run the ball more efficiently, because I think we’ll be able to throw it with anybody.” Need NFL Tickets?
